A new victim may be coming forward in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
On October 9, the former Penn State University assistant football coach was sentenced to not less than 30 years for molesting 10 boys over 15 years. He will be 98 years old when he will be able to apply for probation.

A 21-year-old man going by the name “John Doe” filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court of the Middle District of Pennsylvania Monday against Sandusky, Pennsylvania State University, The Second Mile and Penn State administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curly and Gary Schultz.
It is not clear whether “John Doe” was part of the criminal case against Sandusky.
In the lawsuit, “John Doe” says he met Sandusky through The Second Mile summer program.
He alleges that Sandusky “squeezed and manipulated” his genitals while they were swimming on the Penn State campus, and the incident left him permanently “emotionally injured” and “traumatized.”
“John Doe” claims he would not have been injured by Sandusky if the school and organizations who “were aware for years that Sandusky was molesting young boys” had not covered up his misconduct.
The lawsuit also alleges that school administrators have covered up sexual abuse complaints from female employees.
Penn State President Rodney Erickson has said the school will make an effort to settle all the lawsuits from sex abuse victims.
